Hessle, East Yorkshire-based Neill & Brown Global Logistics has made the largest change to its board in four decades after it appointed three new directors.
Long-term employee Stuart Dean has been made portable movements operations director.
He joins the board along with newcomers Paul Allon, who has been appointed the company’s finance director and Dominic Yeardley, commercial director.
The trio join CEO Peter Brown, MD Colin Moody and logistics director Carl Andrew.
Neill & Brown added that finance director Ian Halder will retire after 13 years at the company.
“These senior appointments have been made as the initial stage of a broader succession strategy and we expect them to play a significant role in increasing our stronghold in the UK, European and worldwide logistics industry from our base in the Humber,” said Brown.
“I would like to publicly thank Ian Halder for his hard work, commitment and sound advice, and wish him a very happy retirement.”
Allon, who has more than 15 years’ experience across the manufacturing and construction sectors, said: “I am very excited about working with the senior team at Neill & Brown.
“I want to build on its history and excellent reputation, which extends from the Humber across the globe, to enable further growth over the coming years.”
Neill & Brown started in Hull in 1917 and today employs nearly 150 staff across its Hull sites.
